This one's all about the obvious control the media has over people.
Big Credit to Shaggyhaired for the beat check it out. http://www.newgrounds.com /audio/listen/294293

I was sucked into the digital projection
of a criminal deception without an apparent lesson.
So it seems to me transparency will mean rejection
ejected out to sea, man and no one second guessed it.
Heard the same jokes played a hundred thousand ways
So I'd rather stay at home and listen to the sound of rain
tapping on my window pane, I doubt that I'd ever regret it.,
I found the only medic to protect me from the age.
My focus wonders on adventure from corrupted walls
But the beast will still prey at front and center for us all.
Huddle round the burning blaze
And warm your hands on every turning page.
And then in turn you gotta pay the toll some day
Ya gotta earn a wage and learn like every single phrase
say that we have something gained
concern the furnishing in vain
Do the people really need any further servicing
we deserve to be free like it's an emergency

So what do we as people plan to be
head ducked beneath the steeple
Appease the need to plea insanity.
These are crazy days
Seepin' through the cracks of apathy
I'm just glad to be a man of dreams that've been relaxin' me.

It aint so easy to be changin' my mind
to be changin' my mind to be changin' my mind
Distracted by the cable that's been takin' my time
that's been takin' my time I been wastin' my time
So don't push me to start watchin' tv
Or read the magazines by the paprazzi
Yo we all got problems but some rich celebrity
Must be more important than you and me

'Cus what I'm learnin has been deeply hurtin me
But I'd never go as far as to start insurgency.
We been breakin' free from this t.v. screen dream
I could see my own reflection on the plastic packaging
And now little Stevie plays a game of hide and seek
on the factory machines gunning down all of the weak
Is this really humanities final call to duty
Or is it a bunch of kids who like to do some pretend shooting
Either way I never found it genuinely moving
No one stops to think about what they're actually doing
This episode was brought to you by thought out terror
plottin' out the era with, uh somethin nice to stare at.
Knockin' on your door put your cares one big hat
And share 'em with every single mother fucker that you pass.
I don't really care but I been subject to this error
gotta say i mirrored the reflection with class
So how long do you think the currnet forcast will last
Now there isn't much that I am currently scared of
Currency, in a hurry, the absence of fair love,
The idea of aliens in the air above

and the media take over that no one dares to touch.
and the media take over that no one dares to touch.
and the media take over that no one dares to touch.
well I guess I gotta go, I'm always pressin my luck.
